Ever wonder what it's like to be a catcher? Come to this class! We'll teach you how!
In this class, you will learn the fundamental movement of catching: THE CATCHER'S LOCK. Our special low-catcher rig is perfect for learning! This low rig allows students to learn the real movements without needing to climb high. Students who have mastered the basics may choose to attempt a real catch! (This is completely optional).
Students who become proficient at the Catcher's Lock will begin to understand the timing of flying trapeze skills and other knowledge that enhances your Flying success! Even if you have no desire to catch someone for real, this class is an excellent strength workout!
This class is by-request only. Please contact Coach Don if you are interested.
**This class requires a high level of fitness. Ages 13 and up only. Before you take this class, it is strongly recommended that you've done Flying Trapeze before, or a similar activity such as Gymnastics. On Flying Trapeze, you should have progressed beyond the knee-hang before attempting this class. If you have questions, please ask us!**
